This is the Day

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. - Psalm 118:24 NIV

I've waited two years for mornings like these:
Mornings where blue sky is the only thing I see when I look up towards the heavens.
Sunshine, ever so slowly, climbing up and over my rooftop to shine on the ripening, red cherries.
Birds singing - flitting - flying overhead, beaks full of fruit.
Warm, vanilla coffee to sip, Devotional in hand.
Cool breeze softly flowing over my toes.
Breathing in tranquility.

Realizing this - yes, this is the day the Lord has made.
I am rejoicing and I am very glad in it.

PS:  Last year we had heat in the triple digits with no breeze.  And the cherries? They were dehydrated before they even ripened.


  1. Since Friday evening the weather has been delightful. It is nice to have warm temperatures with very little humidity. We had a nice breeze yesterday. There is much less of a breeze today, but still a wonderful day. That cherry looks succulent.

  2. That is one perfect cherry. Did you get some oil and polish it before taking the photo? LOL. Have a great Sunday.

  3. I want to reach out and pick that cherry,it looks delicious.
    In the the song,This is the day,we sing a second verse which says,these are the friends which the Lord has give,we will rejoice and be glad with them.
    That is what I am doing today,my friend.Have a great day.

  4. What a wonderful shot ... continued blessings on your day.

  5. Succulent and vivid!
